Australia Day

On Australia Day we come together as a nation to celebrate what's great about Australia and being Australian. Australia Day is the biggest day of celebration in the nation.

On Australia Day we celebrate the things that make our country great: the people, the land, our diversity, our sense of a fair go, our lifestyle and our freedoms. We reflect on our national journey. We commit to making our country even better in the future.
